    The best I can come up with are approximations.

    coat = opockhe
    and
    shirt = opockhe hassa

    from the few words of Saponi as recorded by Fontaine.
    Bear in mind that the content or usage of a thing can change the word.

    Wow I was trying to find a name for a shawl, or cape. But I can't combine those because then it sounds like my name- akhasa. funny stuff.
